For Whom Is the Summit

For Whom Is the Summit
By Erick San Juan

Nations around the world (forty-seven of them) attended the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, DC last April 12 and 13 that focused on how to better safeguard weapons-grade plutonium and uranium to prevent nuclear terrorism.
"Terrorist networks such as al-Qaida have tried to acquire the material for a nuclear weapon, and if they ever succeeded, they would surely use it. Were they to do so, it would be a catastrophe for the world, causing extraordinary loss of life and striking a major blow to global peace and stability." US President Barack Obama said at the opening session of the summit at the Washington Convention Center.
Again, we can see here how the Obama administration is so obsessed with the so called al-Qaida terror group that went as far as dragging other countries to prevent a perceived “enemy” from causing a nuclear attack. I wrote several times about this “outside enemy” exposed by several experts as a creation of the CIA – the al-Qaida group and its network of terrorists. Such creature is being used conveniently if needed especially the never-ending global war on terror (GWOT). A myth that was drawn out from the ashes of September 11, 2001 attacks at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Since then the threat of another terror attack has come in handy from the handler’s perceived need to create tension and fear amongst us.
According to Michel Chossudovsky, “As far as it goes, in the present context, the US is the most dangerous threat to global security and what this conference aims at achieving is to diffuse this understanding. It’s a PR campaign which seeks to present the nuclear threat in some distorted way, so that people who listen to the media report will believe that Al-Qaeda, Bin Laden and global terrorism is the issue, rather than the strategic objectives of the US which include now the preemptive use of nuclear weapons against non-nuclear states.”
Also this summit heightened what was identified before by former US president George W. Bush, Jr. as the “rogue states” being the threat to the United States homeland security particularly, Iran and North Korea (both not invited in the summit). This has nothing to do with a dead (resurrected) Osama bin Laden and his CIA-backed terror group, this is about the real threat of nuclear war directed against Iran by the United States and Israel. Let us all be realistic here, the fact that President Obama threatened Iran of an imminent nuclear attack and still using the “all options are on the table” approach (like his predecessor used to say), we are all in for a mutually assured destruction.
Sadly, countries like the Philippines is again being taken for a ride here and possibly be part of a war that we never wanted in the first place, all in the pretext for world peace. Or, is it only for the benefit of our “friendly ally” and his police dog stationed in the Middle East? For whom is this summit anyway?
